With the new remake about to come out February 14, I've been wondering if a female version of the character would work for today instead of a male, and so I've come up with a list of actresses that could play the part based on some fan art that I've seen:
As Alexandra Janet Murphy:
*Sarah Polley (provided they film the movie in Toronto!)
*Jada Pinket Smith
*Mary Elisabeth Winstead
Sam Lewis (Ann Lewis):
For the villians:
The Old Man (male version):
The Old Man (female version)
*Alfre Woodward (played a fictitious version of Condalezza Rice in the short-lived Black Panther
Dick Jones (male version)
Robert Downey Jr.
Dick Jones (female version, called Liz Jones):
I have nobody for the main bad guy Clarence Boddicker or anybody else in the movie, so if anybody wants to come up with their own casting, go ahead.
The plot would be the same except adjusted for the fact the the main character is female, as would some of the others, and with some other changes and updates.
